33 Beautiful Grey Hairstyles For All Lengths

Making the decision to throw the hair dye away and transition to grey hair can often be a daunting one, particularly for women who have regularly dyed their hair for many years.

Grey hair is often more fragile, has a much drier texture and is often wrongly associated with old age, but over recent years there has been a ‘silver sisters’ movement in which women of all ages have embraced their natural locks, being proud of their natural shade and rocking some incredible grey hair styles.

Grey hair has now become a fashionable trend, with celebrities flocking to the salons with requests for salt-and-pepper and ice-white styles.

I have been through the process myself, making the decision a few years ago to put down the bottle and transition to my natural grey hair. It took a little bit of research, regular haircuts and testing different products, but I’m really happy with the way my natural grey hair now looks… and it’s so much easier (and cheaper) to manage!

Thinking about embracing your natural grey hair?

Whether it is short and sassy, a mid-length bob, long layers with lots of texture, natural curls or braids, there are lots of flattering hair styles that suit grey hair perfectly and we wanted to share just some of our favourites. All of the women featured have given permission for their beautiful grey hair images to be used and you can find a link to their Instagram accounts below each image.
